Carnival Freedom by Cruising Santa 1
On the forward of the ship next to a public deck. Good view, quite, roomy. Nice cabin if you don't mind walking a lot.  Read entire member review.

We had 6th floor standard size balcony, which was perfect level, only one flight of stairs down to casino, shops, bars and theatre on level five, and only three flight of stairs up to pool and buffet on nine. Not much to say about accommodations - Carnival has some of the biggest standard sized cabins around, with plenty of storage space, far more that two people need for a week. Balcony was small, with just two chairs and a table, but perfect for sitting out and surveying your kingdom, as the ship sails along !

We had a balcony cabin. The balcony was roomy and made a great gathering place for friends. The storage and closets were adequate. The shower was great for the limited space. It flooded the first day and staff came IMMEDIATELY h to suck out the pipes (never happened again). Balcony rooms come with a couch that has drawers underneath for more storage. Room was kept spotless. We were in the center of the ship on the Upper Deck. The location is so good we booked the same room for next year.  Read entire member review.

Freedom from reality by Michigandergrl
Carnival Freedom - Balcony Cabin 6355 - This room is right over the casino bar area. We could hear the band playing but it did not bother us enough to keep us awake. Mornings were very quiet. Loved the location. We had elevators/stairs either forward or back, depending on which part of the ship we were heading to and the same goes for up and down, we were right in the middle. I would choose this room again in a minute.  Read entire member review.
7341

Room 7341 is right near the mid-ship elevators making it really easy to get anywhere we wanted. Room 7341 is a category 8C balcony cabin on the starboard side of the ship. It has two twin beds pushed together to make a king, and a sofa/bed. The room is a good size for 3 people. We were able to move around fairly easily while each one was getting ready. The balcony was nice because it gave us some extra room to go and relax if we wanted. I found it very relaxing to be able to go out and just watch the waves. Being on deck 7 was nice; we were sandwiched between two other guest decks so we did not have the noise of chairs or music coming from public areas. The one downside, that is also and advantage, is that the cabin is right across from the laundry room. Everyone was considerate and noise was not a problem, but it is easy to make a lot of noise in there just by talking.

CRUZERS FOREVER by frstimecruzers
Great Balcony room,great view, whether on the balcony or could lie down on bed and see out as coming into port. Had plenty of room for us.  Read entire member review.

Great room for 4, very quiet, balcony is too tight. The one chair reclines so there is no room to put your feet.  Read entire member review.

Very quiet and loved the balcony. Add the balcony however takes out space - making the ocean view a larger room for a family of four. I enjoyed the balcony enough the space trade off was OK. Go for the 7th floor as it is secluded from the noise of the Lido Deck.  Read entire member review.

Fantastic Freedom! by Dare2Believe

One word of caution about this cabin (7369) for people who are looking to sail on the Freedom in the future it is right across from the steward storage area for the vacuums/service carts/other misc stuff. We didnt think anything of it at the time of booking, but for the first two nights around 11:45pm and between 3:00am and 4:00am, then again around 6:00am there would be LOUD banging, door slamming and talking by the stewards as they put their supplies away/got them out. This is a very loud part of the hallway - and it is inevitable since these individuals need to get their supplies...just some fair warning!

Enjoyed our Freedom by bklynhugh
As on all Carnival ships the cabins are all pretty much the same per category ( inside, outside, balcony etc.). Standard Carnival Cabin with balcony with 2 chairs and a table. Couch was used as bed for 3rd person. Beds comfy! There is no pull down bunk in this cabin. Steward was good. Only one plug in for the cabin so bring power strip if you need many plug ins: cameras, phones, lap top etc !  Read entire member review.

Cabin was fine. Nice Balcony. Room was not cool, called maintenance and they said 72 was fine, and that was when the sun was down. It was 80 degrees in the sun. Close to elevators and quiet hallway.  Read entire member review.

Our cabin is what we expected, clean, large and plenty of closet space. The beds were comfortable, we slept great every night. The negative side was our cabin steward. We initially gave him $20.00 which was a big mistake without going into details the supervisor had to get involved. Was a very big difference from our previous stewards from former cruises on Carnival.  Read entire member review.

Carnival Freedom by JWeCruiser

Amazing views, plenty of closet space, comfortable bed. Perfect location on the ship. Great balcony room and well worth the extra price!!

A typical Carnival balcony cabin. No particular annoying characteristics. Our toilet exploded, but that was an isolated incident and was resolved in minutes, so I would not expect that to be a negative. This stateroom does have connecting door, but we heard very little from the young and fairly rowdy folks in there.

Fabulous Freedom Cruise by cruisinbuddy
We had cabin 8244, and this was the same cabin we had on the Liberty in '07. It is a quiet location near the Atrium elevators. Closet space was bigger than needed, and they had drawers and a couple other small cabinets.  Read entire member review.

A mixed bag by wally437

Nice cabin with plenty of room. We had our granddaughter with us and they made the couch into a bed but we do wish they would have made it into a couch during the day when we weren't sleeping.

8430
Cabin 8430 has to be the noisiest cabin on ship. All night long you hear the "comings and goings" of other passengers visiting the only all night eatery on ship. SHAME on Carnival for charging the same for this balcony cabin as any other.  Read entire member review.
9222
We were on the lido deck forward, port side room 9222. There is alittle bit of noise ,but not to keep you awake. It sounds like water running ,but I loved the room anyway, it didn't bother me in any way, I was just curious of why. As far as quiet, the hallways were always quiet cause those rooms only hold two in each room, so hardly any family's on that deck. I always love forward cabins. I used the balcony a lot.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was nice and had plenty of room. Plenty of storage. Thin walls made for loud noises at all hours.

Tiny room was barely enough for two people, so the four of us kept bumping into each other. Small balcony, tiny bathroom, but good closets. Rooms are clean and smell and insects free though.  Read entire member review.
